My wife found this place on a website and we decided to check it out. We would lucky to have only a 1/2 wait for a table Couples were arriving by the minute asking for a table. They were told an hour or so wait. Couples were booking for the next day for reservation. A very popular place indeed.

There a few unique things that stuck out in mind about this place. The menu was computerized on a screen so you could use your fingers to scroll to the different desserts and drinks. Once you got used to this gadget it was easy to scroll through the menu with prices that we thought we reasonable. The restaurant looked like a bordello. Lots of red and it was fairly dark inside. You could describe the restaurant sexy. Our waitress was from an Eastern European country and greeted us with the menu. She was quite helpful.

There is something for everyone on the menu. Whatever your sweet tooth desired, it was on the menu. There was a variety of drinks on the menu that you might not find at the local bar. In Key West, there are numerous bars of all sorts. But none of them matched Better than Sex. Our desserts were presented in an appealing manner. They were quite tasty. You could tell everything was home-made. We were not disappointed and the wait was well worth it.

If you are visiting Key West and looking for a unique experience, you should consider going to Better than Sex Restaurant. Be sure to call ahead and make a restaurant as this place is very popular with the locals and tourists.

We had a reservation ( highly reccomended) but were early and the seated us right away though. This place is all about the atmosphere, from the dark surroundings, red drapes, interestring photos and a really eclectic selection of music. Very relaxing place to be. The menu is very fun to read and the choices are wide. Ohhh, yes the desserts are excellent. Sure they are more pricey than a standard restaurant, but the experience is worth it. The coffee is very tasty and they did not rush us out of the place.

I would say ship dessert at your restaurant and get one here

This is one of the neatest places we have ever been. It is a small restaurant that only serves desserts (food and drink). The atmosphere is awesome. It is dark with dim lights and candle lights. The desserts are out of this world! Better Than Sex....I think so! This is just a really nice, quiet, and romantic place. The menus are on ipads. The waitresses are so good at their jobs. We stayed in Key West for two nights and ate here both nights! I highly recommend reservations. It is rather hard to get in otherwise.

I Was recommended this restaurant from a local at the marina, And it was everything he Told us and more, my wife had the "rim job" moscato and the nookie cookie, and I had a homemade liqueur and the chocolate grilled cheese, it was amazing! When (and if) we come back, this is a must for us! The waitress was amazing, and so was the food. The atmosphere was dark and secluded and perfect! A must for everyone!

I loved the atmosphere and the ambiance of this restaurant. Very romantic and the desserts are awesome! Unique names of desserts and large portions. The menus come in Ipads and they have descriptions and pictures of all the desserts and drinks.
Our waitress was awesome and patient when we took our time selecting all of the food.
They even lend you a flashlight if you need more light to see the menus. I would recoment making a reservation when you plan to go there, otherwise on a busy night you will have to wait. But they do text you when you are 15min away from recieving your table.
